Owner description: From the stunning skyline to the spectacle of Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong is full of world-class sights for travellers to see. But if you’re looking for fun – to add a little ‘do’ to your ‘see’ – then look no further than Happy Wednesday at Happy Valley Racecourse, the city’s trendiest headquarters for mouth-watering food, thirst-quenching beverages and thrilling excitement both on and off the track. There’s nothing quite like a night at the races in Hong Kong! Week in and week out, Happy Wednesday fans are treated to a full sensory experience, pairing the pulse-pumping entertainment of jousting jockeys with a weekly theme that is integrated into everything from live bands and interactive games to on-course decorations and a delicious, reasonably priced trackside menu. Come in the fall and you’ll be treated to refreshing pints and a festive bratwurst for Oktoberfest – the largest outdoor beer festival in Hong Kong. Drop in during May, however, and it’s all ratatouille and brie, as Happy Wednesday hosts the hugely popular French Nights. It’s an extravaganza that’s fit for Asia’s world city, putting an international twist on a sport that has a rich heritage and cultural tradition for the city’s people. There’s simply nowhere else in the world where you can experience such a seamless blend of racing and lifestyle in one event. Whether you’re a local, an expat, or just visiting Hong Kong, there’s truly something for everyone at Happy Wednesday!

I am not a betting person, but we went along to experience the night-time racing, have a few beers and some fast food.

We live in Hong Kong and we go here when we have visitors to have a good time. It is so cheap and lots of fun. The price is ten hkd per person.
If u don't know how to bet on the horses u can get help from the staff.
It is very fun to gather some friend and bet a little bit of money or a lot. I mean the most fun thing is to look at those people who screams and shout as it was life or death. You can grab some food on mc Donald's or you can try the street food. You can buy a beer jug to share.
They have live music in between the races. If u go here you will have a great time:)

Great night even if you don't like the races. Take your passport to the members and you can get in there as an overseas visitor - about 100 HK dollars. Best place to get a beer is in the public enclosure in front of the track. Then take it back to the members for the best view.
